I’d recommend starting lower and working your way up to where you want to be, because 1-2mg under the tongue does not perfectly equal a 10mg edible (bioavailability varies heavily especially with edibles). Sublingual application is pretty fast, so it’s not as hard to gauge and adjust as edibles that can take 1-2 hours to kick in. Keep in mind sublingual application also runs its course much faster than edibles. In terms of drinking tincture, it works basically the same as an edible.
In this case it would probably be 50mg for the 50mg experience, but personally I think it absorbs slightly faster and harder than actual edibles, so you should probably try slightly less if you want to go that route. Sublingual is the best way to go with non-alcoholic tincture imo. I’ve only used alcoholic tincture like an edible to avoid burning my tongue, but sublingual is just so much more like smoking that I enjoy it way more (plus you use less tincture). Edit: I missed part of your question the first time, but what I do for tincture under the tongue is 1-5 minutes, and with non-alcoholic tincture you can put more than the expected amount of drops under your tongue without burning like the alcoholic ones. I always swallow it after holding it under my tongue because the amount you swallow isn’t significant after absorbing most of it under your tongue (plus sublingual doses are much smaller than edible doses anyway), but you can spit it out if you prefer. Probably just start with a dropper under the tongue if it’s 6mg, and just see where that gets you before trying more. I'm 90% tincture at this point - no smoking, controllable, healthy, no sugar, and cheaper per mg by far than edibles. I don't know Rev Clinics tincture but I've used Howl's Tincture for the past 3 months. It's 7mg/ml or they have a double strength that's 14 mg/ml.
I only need 1 dropper of original strength so you may have a different tolerance if you need 50mg but also I think it's not a 1 to 1 comparison with edibles. I just drop in my mouth and swallow and it comes on in about 45 mins. Cannabis Tinctures - Four Reasons They Are Better Than Edibles: 18% more THC was absorbed with a tincture than with a capsule. A fatty meal will increase THC absorption enough that it won’t matter what form you take THC in. Bioavailability is highest with vaping or smoking, then with tinctures. Edibles are down at the bottom of the list, and adding fat to your meal does not make edibles the same as tinctures. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/16237477/ shows that vaping or smoking has up to about 30% bioavailability, while edibles are at about 4% to 12%. The science is clear, but that doesn't mean you're imagining that edibles affect you more, or that vaping is faster or slower. There's wide variation in how we individually respond to different delivery methods. Find what you like, that works for you, and be happy. Science usually averages out the response across the whole population in the study, but you are an individual. Would you recommend it over getting a cart or say flower? If you have concerns about lung health then edibles or tinctures are probably the way to go. If you're comfortable with the level of risk from flower or vaping then it's all pretty much the same thing. With a slight exception with edibles in that there is a portion of the human population whose livers don't process ingested thc the same as everyone else and they are essentially immune to edibles. In those cases, tinctures are a better option for them as tinctures are administered sublingually and aren't processed through the liver before entering the blood stream. These 10 Colorado-made marijuana vape products might contain harmful additive MCT oil. If you use any of these, check your label for MCT oil as an ingredient. Some marijuana vaporizers sold this year in Colorado may contain an additive called medium chain triglycerides oil, leading state authorities to issue a health advisory this week that encourages consumers to check and potentially dispose of their products. The Colorado Department of Revenue’s Marijuana Enforcement Division and the state Department of Public Health and Environment identified 10 product lines that at one time used this so-called MCT oil and have sold at least one unit since Jan. MCT oil was among other additives, including vitamin E acetate and polyethylene glycol (PEG), that the state banned in marijuana concentrates or products intended for inhalation this year following the outbreak of vaping-related lung illnesses. Vaping products that consumers should be aware might include MCT oil: Cannxtra Indica CXvapes from Cannxtracts (assorted flavors) Fuehl from Baker Extracts and Nomad Extracts (assorted flavors) Pax Pods from The Lab Pure Oil from Nectar Bee (assorted flavors) Pure Vibe- All in one – Vape Pen from WHT LBL (assorted flavors) Pure Vibe Vape Pen Cartridge from WHT LBL (assorted flavors) The Clear Classic from Clear Colorado Group (assorted flavors) The Clear Cartridge from Clear Colorado Group The Lab from The Lab (Creamsicle and Lime Sherbert flavors) Tumbleweed Vapes from Green Cross Colorado.
Customers are encouraged to check the label of their vape products to see if MCT oil is listed as an ingredient. If so, regulators say to return it to the store from which it was purchased for proper disposal.
Those who experience any adverse health effects from smoking these vaporizers are advised to seek medical attention immediately and report the details to the store where they bought their products.
